I noticed that the devguide didn't explicitly mention that core
developers were expected to follow the PSF CoC (https://docs.python.org/devguide/coredev.html and https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/, respectively). I have opened http://bugs.python.org/issue26446 to make sure it gets documented.
Since this is technically a modification of the requirements of getting
commit privileges I wanted to mention it here before I (or anyone else) made the change.
When I started here, the PSF and python-dev were considered disjoint entities (quoting MvL from memory). Looking at
half of the current directors have never appeared anywhere on the python-dev infrastructure, most notably on python-checkins.
Contrast this with e.g. the period of 2003-2004, where I still know all of the directors even though I did not know Python at that time!
Some very prolific contributors do not appear in the list of PSF members at all.
This particular CoC specifically addresses conference misbehavior, which is fine.
FYI It has nothing to do with conferences.
